There are almost too many WTF moments to choose from in the latest Fast and the Furious movie, but nothing tops the sequence in which Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) boards the villainous Cipher's (Charlize Theron) plane in order to rescue Dom's (Vin Diesel) kidnapped infant son.

Cue The Stath placing a pair of headphones on the baby's head, playing a Chipmunks song, and then proceeding to violently annihilate an entire plane full of Cipher's goons, while holding the baby car seat, kid and all, in the other hand.

Statham's banter with the baby, such as asking whether it was him or one of the dead goons who crapped themselves, is the hilarious icing on a totally outrageous cake.
